Many of you are aware that earthquakes have hit both the east coast (Virginia up to Boston) and Colorado in the last hour leaving cell coverage in trouble.  We have reports from readers and industry connections that towers are currently out in Virginia and possibly up through New York.  No word yet on Colorado.  If you attempt to make calls, you may be directed instantly to voicemail.

If you are in an area that was touched by one of these ‘quakes, feel free to let us know in the comments if you have cell service.

As we hear more, we’ll be sure to update this post.

Update:  We’re hearing that texting and data will still work in areas where voice has gone down.
